    A very inspiring story. Thanks for posting the link. What job titles should an inspired geography student look for to start the journey in the business world?

    • Justin 10 years ago

      Good question. But there are too many to list. The key is to look for an industry/organization where an understanding of location is essential. Real estate, international business, consumer marketing, regional planning, etc. The title doesn’t matter but try to find a position where you get to help analyze locations and, if possible, work directly with paying customers. Best, Justin

      Don’t focus on job titles. The company or industry that makes you feel honestly excited is the one you want. Finding the right “job” is the same as finding your calling or love. Your heart is your bearing. Only you will know it.
